Upon watching this initially I expected a typical romantic film that blasts through cinemas for gathering a cool 500m dollars until the next clone comes around. Bradley Coopers A Star Is Born however surpasses all pre conceptions I had with a wonderful entanglement of talent, love, substance abuse and more. 

    The narrative this film drives stars Bradley Cooper playing musical superstar Jackson…
